The municipal government of Larena officially kicked off its first Physical Fitness and Sports Development Program for the Youth on Wednesday afternoon, 10 August 2022 at the Larena Queengate Center.
Dubbed as “Larena Sports Clinic”, the program is open to males and females ages 7-25 years old determined to learn and further improve their skills in sports.
Larena Mayor Cyrus Vincent Calibo said that he believes that sports play an important role in healthy and optimal development; thus, the municipal government made sure to have a sports clinic aiming to gather the youth during school break and make use of their time in sports while building friendship, camaraderie, and teamwork.
“It also teaches our kids values of discipline, sportsmanship, and hard work,” he said.
Mayor Calibo also added that the clinic is an opportunity for young sports aficionados to hone their athletic skills for future competitions and scholarships.
As of now, the sports clinic offers a series of free training and coaching sessions focusing on basketball and volleyball. Below is the schedule for your guidance:
